Healesville Sanctuary Platypus Pools  

 

Pipeteck assisted with the hydraulic design & instalation of the filtration plant & pipework at Healesville Sanctuary Platypus pools. The pools have been a huge hit with visitors to the sanctuary.

The project was unique & required precise water chemistry, laminar flow & regulated temperature for the native animals. This was achieved with specialised filtration elements to maintain crystal clear bacteria free water with out chemicals.  The filtration system is user friendly, with self cleaning cycles & 5 star rated green friendly pumps. 

Due to the creative shapes of the pools & the natural habitat appearance, electrofusion HDPE pipe was used to allow the pipework to remain un seen & free from defects.  Pipeteck also manufactured Stainless steel skimmer boxes & floor grates with laser cut perforations to protect the animals from injury. The project provided Pipeteck with another opportunity to demonstrate its "can do" approach to challenging projects.


 

Eastern Treatment Plant

Pipeteck carried out the removal of 32 klm of pipework from 8 airation tanks for Melbourne Water at their Carrum Downs Treatment plant   

Pipeteck has been a service provider for Melbourne Water for the past 7 years carrying out remedial plumbing work and special projects including CCTV with tractor cameras and pushrods, sonar locating, high pressure water jetting, confined space entry and emergency project management.


  Seville Water Play Park  

      

Pipeteck was contracted to install the hydraulics for the 1.2 million dollar water park. The Park was a converted 1950's pool which needed extensive renovation due to dilapidation. The pool was converted into a contemporary water play park that interacts with users. The pool has had a concrete deck put on it as seen above. This allowed 2 tanks to be installed below the deck. A treated water tank which is used to cycle water through the spray jets which are remotely activated via sensors plates. The other tank collects water from surrounding stormwater run off which is used for the wetlands habitat.

The project presented numerous challenges. Health issues with water and human interaction. The park was designed to cycle up to 6000 litres per minute via variable speed pumps and a 14 channel array of solenoids to make the water park dance. Pressure spike prevention was critical to prevent injury to park users. Electrofusion HDPE pipework was used through out the the park giving the plumbing a long trouble free life. This solution provided a reactive pipe to chemicals & maintained flexibility to prevent pipe cracking or shearing.

The Project has been a big hit with locals and has had high use since its opening in early 2011.


South Morang Terminal Station

 

The Project to replace and extend an existing 150mm fire service within the South Morang terminal station posed numerous unique challenges.  The ground was susceptable to electrolysis due to an earth grid required for the power transmission of electricity. The existing pipe material was asbestos and Pipeteck utilised the latest HDPE technologies to come up with a cost effective solution. Pipeteck is fully kitted out for HDPE in all sizes and has the latest electrofusion welding equipment. The building site had considerable basalt rock shelves & the HDPE pipe provided a robust solution for the application.


 Flinders St Station Dilapidation Survey

 

 

 

 Flinders Street station has been under utilised for some time and is an iconic landmark for Melbourne. Pipeteck was asked to evaluate the pipe work within the dilapidated structure. Data was captured using CCTV drain cameras and a criticality survey report was provided on the hydraulic integrity of the building.

CCTV Drain Surveys

Pipeteck recently undertook a cleaning and CCTV survey of the sewer system at Thredbo.

A pipe collapse had been present for some time without detection and no choking had occurred due to high sewer flow clearing the collapsing ground.

The road workers did mention they had been refilling a hole at the bus stop for over 2 years!!!!
